Dream Card

Today I want to share a quickie card, simple design. It's always nice to receive a special handmade card, just makes the occasion that little bit more special! So if the thought of creating a handmade greeting card becomes a little daunting try using a basic card layout design. It really isn't as difficult as it might seem. Using different patterned paper or embossing folders and changing the embellishments can change the focus of a card allowing you to use the same simple sketch design over and over :)

  • First step is to cut cardstock to the size you want. Mine is cut to 6x4 1/2
  • Then I cut a piece of coredinations pastel a little smaller and ran it through my bigshot to emboss
  • I then took some ribbon from my stash and adhered it across the bottom
  • Then I placed a smaller blossom in the right hand corner and used a rubon on word. Voila!
Maybe this has inspired you to get a jump start on your Christmas card list :)

Have a great day, I am off to enjoy some of this lovely sunshine while it lasts!

Thanks for stopping by
